It kind of depends.: It depends on the cause of and severity of hirsutism. For women with mild hirsutism due to pcos, a new product was just launched that helps. It's all natural and is a derivative of substances in the vitamin b family. It's called pregnitude (www.Pregnitude.Com). See a qualified reproductive endocrinologist who can discuss other options.

A member asked:

Is hirsutism dangerous?

Not by itself: Hirsuitism is not dangerous, but you may want to ask your doctor why. For example, a hormonal or thyroid problem may need treatment. Pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) is another example - the hirsuitism it can cause is not in itself dangerous, but associated findings like weight gain and high sugars are. Ask your doctor; they may choose to run some tests to be sure.

Hair growth: In plain language it means male-pattern hair growth on the face, neck, chest, or abdomen. It refers to a female and is not related to hair on the scalp. Most cases are due to polycystic ovarian syndrome or are called idiopathic hirsutism. A smaller number are from other causes, including tumors. It must be distinguished from a condition called hypertrichosis.

I have hirsutism, does anyone know any ways to deal with it?

Underlying cause: The first line is to treat the underlying cause: polycystic ovarian syndrome and congenital adrenal hyperplasia are 2 common disorders that include hirsutism. Idiopathic hirsutism (without underlying cause) is treated with a combined approach, which can include birth control pills, anti-androgenic oral drugs, and sometimes tweezing, shaving or electrolysis.

It depends: If the hirsutism is caused by polycystic ovarian syndrome (pcos), you can consider pregnitude, a new, all-natural supplement for correcting hormone imbalances found in women with pcos. You can check it out at www.Pregnitude.Com and tell them dr. Scott roseff sent you!

Depends on cause: Hirsutism, or excessive hair growth, may be caused by genetic/ethnic factors, and/or certain hormonal disorders. Topical treatments (shaving, waxing, plucking, laser, creams) may control hair growth. Diagnosing and then treating underlying hormonal problem (too much male hormones from ovaries or adrenals) may also help. There are rx pills that also decrease male hormone levels and effects.
